Shading Tutorial by msplendens Shading Tutorial by msplendens
I just made this because I was bored and it took forever o-o
Well, between the tut and actually drawing the base.
Which is here btw: [link]
Some notes:
Going up on the bar doesn't always get you a shade and going down doesn't always get you a highlight. Use your eyes to determine whethere to go up or down for a darker/lighter color.
Obviously if your base color is red you'd go up for a highlight (orange/yellow) and down (on the other side) for a shade (purple/fuchsia).
That's all for now.
This is basically how I shade, it might be wrong in some areas, but if you wanna know how I do it, this is it :3 There are plenty of more thorough tuts out there worth checking out.

No crits please
